I wish they hadn't shut down the boards, either. But I've made friends on the bt sites, where I still have trouble keeping up with the number of boards posted there each day. It also made me take a second look at AUDs, and as a result I have scores of excellent shows on my drives now which I would have snubbed before.
This recording, independent of all else, gets 3 stars.
as far as the politics goes, i am also bummed about the boards and pissed at their attitude, but ultimately it is within their rights. they never had a policy that we could tap into the boards, they allowed us to tape from the audience. boards got out because of the renegade activities of bob and betty, and healy getting bribed with drugs at shows. them tightening up is a drag, disorganized, with animosity, and at such a late stage in the game as to make one wonder. however, it is a business, and a failing one at that. they are not my personal friends, they are musicians with bad business sense. the fact that they are not making their boards available for a fee-based download just shows how disorganized and careless they are.
